It has been one week since the reelection of Barack Obama and the reality of Obamacare’s permanence in the American landscape is beginning to set in for many business owners.

Papa John’s founder and CEO, John Schnatter made headlines last week along with a slew of other companies when he announced some...

Carbonite famously dropped Rush Limbaugh on a Saturday Night at the height of the Sandra Fluke controversy.  Carbonite became the poster child for the Rush boycott movement organized by Media Matters, which coordinated the effort with so-called independent groups.

At the time I examined Carbonite’s SEC filings, and how Carbonite had built...

Mike Huckabee was going to be the hammer used by anti-Rush Limbaugh forces both competitive and political to unseat Limbaugh once and for all.

During the height of the anti-Rush fever, I highlighted how Cumulus Media sought to leverage the anti-Limbaugh boycotts by holding Huckabee out as a viable conservative replacement.

The tawdry inner-workings of “StopRush” are being exposed day by day, after an “infiltrator” released recordings and other evidence via The Trenches website.

Among the revelations are alleged use of fake Twitter accounts, employment of an investigator allegedly linked to Brett Kimberlin, and a variety of other tools which, if exposed at the...

I noted the other day the odd attack by various StopRush activists on one of their own, #StopRush turns on itself, devolves into name calling, accusations.

Now the details are coming out, and it turns out that StopRush was infiltrated by a Blue Dog type Democrat who didn’t like their online tactics.  That person, who was the subject...

There are times it’s good just to be a spectator.

I’m not going to try to sort this out, I’ll just note that the “Stop Rush” movement has turned on one of its most prized Twitter activists, or that activist has turned on it, depending who you believe.

I don’t care to believe...

I really urge you to take a look at the Twitter hastag #StopRush, it’s one of the more depressing places on the internet; one can’t help but feel sorry for people who spend their day tweeting obsessively the same things over and over again, day after day, when the rest of the...

Rush Babes intended consequence

Rush Limbaugh launched a Facebook Page called Rush Babes for America, intended to show that more women support him than support the National Organization for Women.

And sure enough, Rush Babes already has more followers than the NOW page, and NOW is griping.

The impetus for Rush Babes was news that NOW had...

The folks behind the “Stop Rush” web page which Limbaugh has highlighted in his tweets (and which I mentioned in some of my posts) have opened a new website, StopRush.net.

The website tracks advertisers, is supposed to show how efficient and effective the anti-Rush movement is, and is meant to keep the...

Very, very interesting.

I had heard from a reader a couple of weeks ago that she heard a Carbonite ad running on the Rush Limbaugh show on a radio station in Texas:

I was in the car running errands so I just don’t remember the exact time. Sometime between noon and 3 o’clock....

On May 1, Carbonite will release its 1st Q 2012 results after the close of the markets, and will host an investor conference call.

At that time, we may get the first glimpse into whether and to what extent Carbonite’s famous March 3, Saturday night jettison of its sponsorship of Rush Limbaugh has...

For an ongoing display of both the absurd and the surreal, sometimes merged sometimes not, visit #StopRush.

I have posted before how Cumulus Broadcasting, cheered on by Rush boycotters, is setting up Mike Huckabee to challenge Rush.
